I'm going to start a homebrew tournament in June.
I'm open to suggestions, but here are my initial plans.
1) Eligible games:
Homebrews that is or was available in cartridge and which rom is also available.
2) Game rounds:
Monthly rounds. Starting in June and finishing in December with last game.
Every round will have its own thread in the AtariAge Atari 2600 Forum or in the 2600 HSC section.
3) Game selection:
I'm planning to choose the games we're gonna play. Probably next year I'd make a list of eligible games and pick them randomly.
I'm not sure if it's better to announce every game from start or to make it a surprise.
I like the simple 10 points for 1st place, 9 for second until 10th place and over get 1 point.
For next year (with more rounds) I'm thinking to award 100 points for first place and then every other player get a percentage based upon his score. So if 1st player got 200 as his game score and you scored 50, 1st place will have 100 points for the round and you'll have 25 points since 50 is 25% of 200.
I like the percentage score system because it incentives everyone to improve his score.
I'll give one homebrew from AA Store for the winner of the 2018 Homebrew Tournament.
Fair or not I am eligible, so beat me if you can!
It can be a homebrew, a hack or reproduction for the 2600 or for other platform.
6) Play fair:
Don't use save states, don't hack or alter the program, don't use turbo controllers, don't exploit bugs etc.
